So It seems like the contour and highlight fad will never fade, which I am not mad at at all.

Dr. lipp Nipple Balm

The season can wreck havoc on our skin causing drynes, flakeyness and irritation. Which is why it is Imporatnt to pay close attention to our skin, Especially our lips. Let’s be honest, Our Lips are such a target area for drynes and irritation that it begs for exfoliation and treatment.
